Upgrading an Android smartphone

by Antuan G. Wish en Francais
Android is the most widely used mobile operating system in the world. Many different devices use the Google operating system, but from the beginning the company has a problem that is difficult to solve: fragmentation.

Although all devices use the same operating system, manufacturers often customize Android with their own themes, applications and internally with different configurations and drivers owned by their PBX providers. 

Therefore, updates are heavily dependent on manufacturers, and when Google releases a new version of Android, it can take months or even years before endpoints are updated at best, as most are obsolete and lose and are no longer compatible with the manufacturer's updates.

Although a smartphone has a lifetime in the media, there are several ways to update it. In this tutorial, we'll discuss the main ways to upgrade an Android smartphone to see the latest version and get the most out of it.

How can I update Android with my company's software?

LG, Samsung, HTC and other manufacturers need to adapt Android updates to their respective devices and send them through their own update clients.

To update the devices with this application, we need to download the proprietary software from your website, install it on our computer and connect the device via the USB cable to automatically check for updates and downloads.

In general, these updates also come from OTA, although it is advisable to use the update whenever possible and it is especially important to format and reinstall the ROM on our terminal.

To update your device via OTA

Some devices such as LG have their own update software installed as an application from which we verify and install updates. Others have simply changed the Android OTA update to get these updates from there.

However, depending on the make and model of the phone, the way it is updated is different, although the update is usually accessible through Settings > Phone Information > Updates.

This method is useful, especially on Nexus devices, as they usually receive updates within a few hours that are published by Google. The device automatically displays a notification (about the GCM service) when it is available for our device, and from this notification we can download and install the update without losing our phone data.

Android update from Recovery, Custom Rom, etc.

Advanced users will probably see the boot loader unlocked and a recovery installed on their systems. From this recovery, you can install updates (through an file), new versions of Android (according to Rome installed at that time) and new rooms, such as Cyanogen Mod, ideally, for example, if a smartphone is not compatible with the "unofficial" update of a newer version available from the manufacturer.
